Lenovo a chineese based corporation has made a name for itself by selling powerful and affordable computers. They may not look as beautiful as Apple computers, but the G530 sure packs a punch. This small guy is priced at just $450.00 is one of the most powerfil laptops you can find in that price range. The keyboard is great! Its large enough for my grandfather to see and the touch buttons at the top keep it up to date with technology.
The included RAM (2 GB) is decent for the price.
Very cool VeriFace Recognition software. (VeriFave Ad)
The Laptop can hold up to 4 GB of RAM which I highly recommend you do if you want to keep Vista.
Very affordable and great for the price.
The touchpad button makes a weird noise (very clicky).
I had a problem with my resolution on boot up, but reinstalling the driver quickly fixes this.
I have not found a uttility to edit the touch button settings, it would be nice to have one.
The processor is a pentium and not a Core 2 Duo.
Overall, for the inexpensive price, I am satisfied with my purchase. I believe ou wouldnt find a better laptop for the price Lenovo charges you.
